Poornima Kumar facilitated a board game called The Game of Digitalised Daily Life during the Living Lab event (‘Changing Perspectives: The Daily Life of Digital’) on October 28, 2023, at the University of Oxford. In The Game of Digitalised Daily Life, participants were provided with five multiple choice questions to answer. Each question asked about a different aspect of how the participant would spend time/money/mental bandwidth gained from using a particular digital service or technology.
Participants progressed through the game based on points randomly allocated to each choice in each round. The participant furthest ahead at the end of the five rounds was considered the winner of the game. The objective of this game was to gain insight into how people make choices around digital service and technology adoption, but without putting pressure on participants to select the ‘correct’ response.
